I was fortunate enough to snag a few antique windows from my friend Amy’s old place (she recently moved and the landlord didn’t want them) with plans to hang them on the porch.

Unfortunately during a crazy Spring storm, they took a tumble from the wind and one of the windows lost a glass pane.

Oh the horror!

Plans ruined…or so I thought.

I used some burlap to create a pouch (attached with a staple gun) and planted a lovely little blue plant in the empty pane.

I love it so much, I almost want to break more panes….almost.

You can see my ceiling project is still in process, but at least the porch is coming along! I still have to paint the ceiling beadboard and trim, then I’ll decide if I want to keep the black hooks or paint them white as well. Perhaps I’ll have this 36 sq ft area finished by winter.

    I have the windows and trying to convince my family this is what I want to do with them. Thank you for having a picture for me to show them. I like what you did with the broken one. Good idea. Take care.
